Welcome to Altruria, Mrs. Crafton!

Hi, I am Morgan Crafton and I will be teaching kindergarten at Altruria this year! I know this year is going to be the best yet because it’s lucky number 7 teaching year for me! I am so excited to be teaching in Bartlett City Schools because I grew up in them! I went to Ellendale Elementary in K and 1st grade. Rivercrest was built and I was the first class ever to attend in 2nd grade! I went to Shadowlawn (now the 9th grade academy) in middle school. I graduated from Bolton High School in 2009 and the University of Memphis in 2013. My certifications include k-6 general education, k-12 special education, physical education, and family and consumer sciences. My very first teaching job was at Southwind Elementary where I taught kindergarten for two years. The past four years I taught at Drummonds Elementary. I taught for three years in first grade and one year in PE. I am married to my husband Joey and we have a son named Henry Tate. He is 13 months old and the love of our lives! I can’t wait for him to go to school with me someday at Altruria. My hobbies include reading, spending time outdoors, shopping, and chasing a baby around.

This year is going to be amazing! Thank you for being so welcoming and making me feel right at home! Altruria is the place for me! There’s no place I’d rather B!
